A few mornings ago the weather had finally cooled off a little and so I decided to walk Caroline to school. As we walked down the street side by side, she looked at me with a serious look and asked, “Mama, what does heaven look like? I used to remember because I’d just been there, but now it’s been a long time and I can’t remember anymore.”
Oh, my heart.
I replied, “Well, God sits on a throne that looks like it’s surrounded by a rainbow. There are beautiful jewels everywhere, streets of gold and a sea of glass where God has thrown all our sins. Angels bow down and say ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty’ and there’s no more sadness or tears ever again.”
She stopped walking and looked at me for a few seconds before she said, “Wow, Mama! It’s even better than I remembered!”
And then my heart officially exploded into a million pieces.
